The Shadow You  is a unique blend of visual novel and adventure while telling two different stories.

Play as Ophelia and Kiel, two characters who fight together in a MMORPG and try to build a relationship in real life, while an unnamed girl attempts to escape a horrific and dangerous world known only as Gloom. You take on the roles of several characters and dive deep into their minds and souls, hoping to unlock their own motives and desires. A love story with horror elements attached to it, you need to explore two different realities, solve puzzles, and make important choices that will ultimately effect the games ending.

With an art style that mixes Asian art and Western-styled figures, The Shadow You offers tons of replayability and complexity for those who dare to search for it. The Shadow You is available for the PC and Mac, and will be released on the Nintendo Switch.
